Additional Information: 

John Greenleaf Whittier, for whom the town of Whittier, California was built, was a nineteenth century poet and author. In 1987, the town decided to honor his 100th birthday with commissioning of a sculpture. It is notable that the man himself never actually stepped foot in the town named after him, and this button represents that he finally would be arriving - in the form of a statue.
